    London After Midnight (MGM, 1927). Argentinean Poster (29" X 43").
    The last known copy of this classic silent horror film starring the great Lon Chaney was destroyed in a fire in an MGM studio vault in 1965. It remains one of the most eagerly sought lost films of the era. Chaney portrays a dual role in the film as a Scotland Yard detective and, in disguise, a hideous looking vampire-like character. The film grossed almost $500,000 at the box office, becoming the most successful collaborative film between Chaney and Todd Browning, the director of Dracula and Freaks. The film was loosely remade by Browning as Mark of the Vampire eight years later. Posters for this famous horror film have been as elusive as the film itself over the last eighty years other than a few lobby cards and several half sheets! This is the first large paper poster to ever surface for this classic film. It depicts Chaney and Marceline Day just as they appear in the film in life-like detail. The poster has the most minor fold separations and some tanning to the older paper stock, but the colors and the poster are in remarkably good condition and completely unrestored. This may be your only chance to ever acquire a full one sheet to this classic Chaney film, so act now or perhaps you will never see it again! Very Fine-.
